“Eventually you will come to understand that love heals everything, and love is all there is.” ~ Gary Zukav
Soft music. Dimmed lights. Candle-lit.
A service of healing, for all who want it. Deeply. And for whatever healing that might mean.
The time: nearly two years ago.
This was the third such service like this I had been a part of. This one, though – different. Different, as I would be in the role of “healer”…listening to people’s petitions, needs, wants, desires. And then – lift those up to a Higher Source.
Is there training for this position? Does a “healer” have to know anything special, do anything special? Did I really know at all what to do?
Perhaps the training had been on the job training from the first two sessions. Two sessions where I was fully involved, except not in this role of “healer”.
…I listened with my heart…
Perhaps this deeper listening is most important. Perhaps really hearing what another soul is saying…not just the spoken words, words from deep within. Words spoken with the eyes. Words spoken from the heart. Words spoken with tears, words spoken with a smile. Words that are real.
It was a sacred experience.
It was not about knowing what the right things were to say or do. It was not about being some sort of expert on any of this.
It was all about being fully in that moment…listening, caring.
And then … being open to the words that came from my soul.
Love, in action. Love, without jugdgement. Love, and love alone.
What a truly moving experience. A complete focus on that moment, that soul, there with me. Our spirits locked together by human touch. A gift from the Divine.
Maybe it all seems a bit “out there”. Touch-feely. It’s not like any of this offers any physical healing, any noticeable healing.
Healing of the soul.
Disease. Pain. Strained relations. Family challenges. Suffered friendships. Lost jobs. Financial difficulties. Death.
The stuff that seems big.
Courage. Show love. Embrace the moments. Wisdom. Fears. Loneliness.
The stuff that’s harder to fully quantify. The stuff that doesn't have to be quantified…just heard…
Where are you at on this? Is there healing that you could use?
I have done this three times, this service of healing. Each time I’m moved to not only play an active role in the healing process, even more than that – to be on the receiving end of this healing gift
To have hands placed on me. To share openly. And then to allow the healing process to begin anew, through that healing touch of another.
Perhaps we can all use a some healing in our lives.
Wherever we are in our life. Whatever we are doing. Perhaps it’s something very specific. Or maybe something more general. When we are open to going deeper within ourselves, to seeing this bigger need for healing, always…
LOVE, in action.
Does anything really change? Am I really any different because I’ve been “healed”? Or does this just seem like some “feel good” moment, only to be quickly forgotten once I’ve left this sacred place?
I can only speak from my personal experience. And in that…I believe deeply that there truly is a healing taking place. I am changed. Maybe it doesn’t cure some disease overnight. Or mend a broken relationship the next day. Or give me that boost of courage I need to stand up for something I believe later that evening. Perhaps it’s much deeper than any of this. Perhaps that healing starts at a soul level. And in that, we experience a deeper wholeness with ourselves
And that, I believe, is love.
May each of you find a deep sense of peace within…and know that love is…
…love is the movement…
